Love Elisabeth Moss and Samira Wiley. Hope they do it justice, this couldn't be more timely.

Oh yes! When is this on? Can't click the link on my shitphone.

Oh don't worry, turns out I can. What an amazing cast! I can't wait. And if Atwood is involved I have high hopes.

They are also doing Alias Grace, filming started in August, not sure when it'll air.

Not sure when it will be on. Alias grace is my 2nd favourite atwood book, so that's good news.

Lordy, that looks good!

Looks amazing but I don't think it's going to be on Netflix- just Hulu which is only available in the US.

Unless I read the article wrong?

There was a truly terrible film (90s?) so would be great to see a good adaptation. Doesn't look like it will be on Netflix though sad

Oh wow. Yes I agree the original film was rubbish sad

I don't have Netflix <cries>

I think Hulu is affiliated with Netflix in some way, I'm sure lots of their 'original' stuff was originally on Hulu. Could be wrong though.

Cagliostro Mon 28-Nov-16 19:39:11

Or Hulu.

The Handmaid's Tale and Alias Grace are my favourite Atwood novels so I'm really excited to hear this. I hope they do them justice.

I loved Alias Grace, such a wonderful read, very much me as it talks about immigration after the famine in Ireland, I highly recommend it. As for Handmaiden's Tale, it is the best dystopian novel ever written.

Super excited to see! My favourite Atwood's as well...along with Cats Eye.

I saw her speak last year and she was fantastic!
